During the past year, disease has shown us the iron grip it can hold over a population of people . Health systems can be overwhelmed, economies can be brought into recession, and many people can be harmed or killed . When weaponized, diseases can be manipulated to create a detriment to health while becoming an economic burden on any society . It is consequently prudent that easy detection of bioweapons is available to governments for protecting their people . Electrochemical sensing displays many distinct advantages, such as its low limit of detection, low cost to run, rapid generation of results, and in many instances portability . We therefore present a wide array of electrochemical sensing platforms currently being fabricated, a brief summary of Class A bioweapons, and the potential future of bioweapon detection and biosafety.
